Humble Administrator's Garden Or Zhuo Zeng Yuan, Suzhou Reviews
A leading attraction of Suzhou and the first among its famous gardens, there's a variety of intricately landscaped scenes to be viewed here. See the variety of odd stones and small potted displays of plants and walk along the small streams and gaze at the occasional fish. However, this is all somewhat upset by the likely flood of tourists around you. Go during the spring or fall when you'll have time to view the gardens leisurely and at your own pace. During the summer the crowds will be waiting behind you at every nook and turn and the walking paths are far too narrow to stop comfortably.
A beautiful well maintained garden. It's best to get a guide once inside to get the most out of the place. Billy was exceptional with very good English, very knowledgeable, and quite entertaining. Even with the crowds you can get postcard quality pictures. Billy was able to manage some of crowds for us and was very skillful at taking pictures. With a guide it took about an 1 hour and 30 minutes to get through the garden.
A very famous acient garden located in the center of historic Suzhou city. It was reputedly build by a wealthy & tasteful mandarin hundreds of years ago, luckily maintained very well for such an old buildings. Its intricate & lavish garden is supposed to represent the epitome of Chinese gardening art.
It is extremely well designed. Full of ancient Chinese beauty. Love it. It truly qualify for one of the top 4 garden of China (中國四大名園)
After going thru the garden, i realized that this administration isn't humble. Instead, greedy would be a more suitable word. After all, the garden is large. Only a greedy person would want more land for gardening. It's an okay garden, but consider how old it is, i would say it's a beautiful garden. However, due to the crowds, you can't really feel harmony with nature. On top of that, admission price of 90 rmb make you feel a bit ripped off.
